Kickstarter: Helheim Playing Cards by Design Imperator


Danish team Design Imperator is currently funding Helheim Playing Cards on Kickstarter. With less than 6 days to go, the project has already hit its funding goal within 6 hours of the campaign launch. Helheim Playing Cards is a fully custom Norse war-themed deck and is the successor to Design Imperator's previous release, Ragnorak Playing Cards.


Two decks are on offer during the campaign, Herja (To Wage War) and Nidhug (Corpse Eater). The Herka tuck sports a dark grey colorway with a blood-red seal. The card backs are dark red with metallic silver ink. The tuck case is manufactured with a solid, ash-grey stock with intricate, embossed artwork, hot stamped with silver foil and spot UV.


Meanwhile, Nidhug is the black edition with an oak brown tuck seal. The card backs are black with metallic silver ink. The tuck case is manufactured with a solid, black stock and has embossing, silver foil and spot UV on the case.


The face cards on both decks feature Vikings of Norse mythology. All illustrations are meticulously hand-drawn by professional artist Nicolai Aarøe. His artwork continues to inspire and capture the essence of Norse mythology.


The dark tone of the deck highlight drama, the intensity of an epic battle. The diptych jokers featuring the massive battle at the fields of Vigridr.


The card backs of Helheim Playing Cards showcase Norse artwork inspired from original knotwork and wood carving designs, both set in a 2-way composition. Both decks have a classic layout of pips and indexes, reimagined in Norse style. Also, the aces of Helheim Playing Cards feature illustrations depicting the massive assaults by Hel's army.


The decks will be printed by NPCC with premium linen finish and pledge starts at DKK$89 (~USD$14) on Kickstarter.
